Figure 1-21: My eBay is your very own personal eBay data center. Your eBay ID appears at the top of the page. This view shows My Summary (you can change the view via the eBay Preferences link located under My Account). My Summary is handy because it shows you an at-a-glance overview of your recent eBay activity: auctions you’re bidding on, merchandise you’re selling, items you’ve put on your Watch list (page 34). You can select the information you want to see (and the order you want to see it in) by zipping over to the upper-right corner of the page and clicking Customize Summary (the first few letters of which are visible in this screenshot).

Try combining letters, numbers, and special characters in a way that’s easy for you to remember but hard for anyone else to guess. For example, if you have a Picasso print hanging over your desk, picasso would be an easy password for you to remember.

Sellers sometimes block bidders who live in countries they don’t ship to, who have a negative feedback score, or who’ve been reported as a nonpaying buyer by more than one seller in the past month.
